HEALTH chiefs are reminding people to get vaccinated now to ensure that flu doesn’t ruin their Christmas.

Full protection from the vaccine takes up to two weeks to develop.

Dr Sheila Newport said: “Flu can knock even the healthiest people off their feet for a couple of weeks but, for some people, it can be really serious - it can even be a killer.”

Those at most risk include pregnant women, people living with a health condition such as severe asthma, chest or heart complaints, and those aged 65 and over.
